Welcome to our IGCSE Chemistry section!

All chapters in IGCSE chemistry are quite interesting; however, students often complain about the vast syllabus covering scores of topics and chemical equations! Here, we have all made it simple by highlighting all the major concepts and feeding you with small tit bits of examiner’s tips and other helpful information.

In Chemistry, there are some chapters that you may find new and challenging to overcome, such as Organic and Inorganic chemistry. Over here as well, we have shortened and simplified all the industrial processes, and all about hydrocarbons.

Perhaps, the most complicated yet scoring part of IGCSE chemistry is stoichiometry and quantitative chemistry. here, it is extremely important to learn the chemical equations and practice tons of questions related to calculations.

We hope that our notes help you score an A* in your IGCSE examinations.

All the best!
